IT was her turn to cry. Adele, master of the sob-inducing lyric, burst into tears as her eighth-grade English teacher surprised her on stage at London’s Palladium during her ITV special, An Audience with Adele, Nov. 21. “You really did change my life,” the 33-year-old told a visibly moved Miss McDonald, known at London’s Chestnut Grove Academy as much for her dance moves and flashy jewelry as for her love of literature. “I still have all the books!”
And she’s still learning. With the release of her new album, 30, Adele has been opening up — both on the record, in multiple interviews and TV specials, and, well, on the actual record, in deeply personal lyrics — about finding herself after her painful divorce from husband of eight years Simon Konecki, the death of her estranged father and finding new love with sports agent Rich Paul. “I was really ignoring myself for a long time,” the mom to Angelo, 9, said on Nov. 14’s One Night Only, “which was wild to me when I realized it.”

MASTER CLASS: THE BARBELL BACK SQUAT
The barbell squat.
The Receipt Keeper D'Angelo Wallace always knows how to cut through the chaos.
IF YOU WANT TO KNOW what’s going on with YouTubers or anybody else with a modicum of influence online, you’ve got two options. You can watch their videos and scour Instagram—or you can get thee to a YouTube drama channel. And no one does a channel quite like D’Angelo Wallace. The Texas-based 22-year-old packs his superlong explainer videos (many of them run over an hour) with timelines, charts, and commentary—a hybrid model that perfectly encapsulates the messiness of the influencers he covers. He now has more than 2.18 million subscribers. “I will say it’s not necessarily a case of me always striving to have the best research, or I’m always going to be 100 percent correct,” Wallace said. “I just am obsessed with the storytelling of it all.”
